Obituary for Journala M. Harrison
Journala M. Harrison, 87, formerly of North Providence and Florida died peacefully Thursday surrounded by her children at the Scandinavian Home in Cranston. She was the wife of the late Joseph Harrison.

It was there she raised her family and was a teacher at the Holy Name of Jesus Catholic School. In 1998 she moved back to R.I.

She enjoyed playing bridge with her friends and was fond of novels that centered around World War II. She had a great sense of humor, loved all things Irish and especially loved her family.
